How to read sheet music with easy tabs?

Sheet music can have easy tabs (fingering) added to make reading the notes easier.

TIP: in musical notation there is a general rule that an accidental sign (a sharp, a flat or a natural sign) is given only once per bar with the first note to which it belongs. The same goes with the fingerings. So, for example, if you see three C notes (low second finger on the A string), only the first one will have "L2" and the others "2" in tabs, but it means all three notes should be played with low 2nd finger.

The following chart will guide you through all the easy tabs in the first position:
